Whether you're trying to snap a pic of your fab meal before you eat it, or your OOTD before you wear it (or just about anything else, really), the overhead shot is the way to go. But how can you capture the perfect from-above photo, one that's just made for Insta double-taps? I have a few ideas.
1. Clear the Clutter
Before you lay out your perfect pic, clear the table, desk, bed, or counter of everything on it, then design your "set" to be free of clutter. Add objects and details one at a time, snapping a pic when you place each item, so you can tell exactly when to stop.
